Algeria, 1976, progressive folk

Djamel AllamArjouth (Laissez-moi raconter…)

I’ve got a soft spot for Berber music, and from what I’ve seen, the music has spread to France. Allam is Algerian, but he spent time in Paris, and that’s where he recorded his debut, using French jazz musicians, though there’s no jazz here. The upright bass just sounds so good.
